How to set up a robocar platform with a remote control unit
At itemis, we are involved in automotive software projects in terms of modeling (domain specific languages for architecture and behavior), tooling (architecture, feature models, implementation, Machine Learning) and concepts/standards (AUTOSAR, Genivi, openADX). At our office in Stuttgart, we are setting up a tangible demonstrator – a robocar platform as a flexible base with an initial showcase of machine learning.
Deep Java integration for YAKINDU state machines
Did you ever want to use a state machine in your Java code? Usually you would implement some switch-case statements over an enumeration or the more object-oriented state pattern. For larger state machines, this approach quickly gets hard to read and maintain. ...

Robot control by YAKINDU Statechart Tools: Leading state machine software supports Club Robotique La Garenne
Time and time again we’re amazed by the various use cases in which YAKINDU Statechart Tools comes into operation. Recently we presented Pinewood Car race, where the lightings of one of the cars were controlled with YAKINDU Statechart Tools. Now, we’d like to present another competition – the French Cup of Robotics at EUROBOT 2018 on the 12th of May. One of the teams uses YAKINDU Statechart Tools to control their robots. Below, they present their task and work.
Searching in state machines with YAKINDU Statechart Tools
The larger the state machine, the greater the need to quickly search for elements – for example, to find a certain state or to find all occurrences of a certain variable or event. YAKINDU Statechart Tools provides this functionality and this blog post shows how to ...
Agility and Automotive SPICE: Establishing Traceability in Agile Projects
Agile working is on many companies’ agendas. Sometimes it works well, sometimes less so: this tends to depend on how well agile principles and values are understood and ‘lived’. Whether a company works with classic project management methods or uses agile frameworks such as Scrum, some requirements remain the same. For example, a project should be able to maintain transparency and traceability of requirements. This can be achieved through status tracking.
Agilität und Automotive SPICE: Traceability in agilen Projekten gewährleisten
Agiles Arbeiten steht bei vielen Unternehmen auf der Tagesordnung. Mal funktioniert es besser, mal schlechter – je nachdem wie gut die agilen Prinzipien und Werte verstanden und gelebt werden. Doch ob ein Unternehmen mit klassischen Projektmanagement-Methoden arbeitet oder agile Frameworks wie Scrum einsetzt, gewisse Anforderungen bleiben gleich. So sollte ein Projekt Transparenz und Traceability – also die Nachverfolgbarkeit von Anforderungen – beispielsweise durch Status-Tracking gewährleisten können.
Taking SCXML to the next level
SCXML is a file format to describe state machines. Although it's widely used, there's a lack of good tool support. If you not only want a graphical editor for your statechart but also SCXML compliant verification, simulation and means to write unit tests, then you ...
